Kristen Stewart ever runs out of "Snow White" sequels, this is what her post "Twilight" career should look like.

For every moment of raw self-destruction there is an equally charming resolution.

[It] will win no prizes for originality, but it benefits greatly from the subtle performances of the two leads, particularly Leo...

Observer [UK]

It's a preposterous story, yet for part of its duration at least, Gandolfini as the slouching, baggily dressed Doug and Leo as the reawakened wife manage to make it rather touching.

This is London

If it could be too slow-burning for some, it is at least a refreshing change from a pattern of film-making that never gives you a moment's rest because there is nothing under the surface.

It's downbeat and has little to say about the grieving process, and while Gandolfini and Leo are memorable, Stewart is not.

Gandolfini's bashful, bear-like Doug is endearing but most of this earnest film just doesn't ring true.

Guardian

It's a well-made film, and New Orleans is crisply and interestingly shot by cinematographer Christopher Soos, but this ultimately looks like a TV movie dressed up for the big screen.

Despite its indie sensibilities, under the surface it's a pure Hollywood heart that beats here.

Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph

Stewart's strung-out, frowzy performance is a timely reminder that the girl can act, but despite strong work from all three leads, the facile screenplay runs out of things to say fairly quickly.

The dialogue and ponderous drama got lost even before the camera rolled.

Observant writing and direction make this exploration of grief surprisingly uplifting.

Quietly assured and superbly written, this is an emotionally engaging drama with a trio of terrific performances from James Gandolfini, Kristen Stewart and Melissa Leo.

Movingly written and exquisitely played by the three leads, this never gets bogged down in sentiment or lazily opts for easy answers.

Stewart lets it all hang out in a firecracker role but her damaged character never achieves the depth the weak material could have done with.

It's not horrible. It's just directed and written with a heavy hand and a sensibility that could use a lot more restraint.

Surprising twists lead the story in unexpected directions. The actors get credit for making you care about these characters. The audience develops a temporary bond during the 110-minute running time.

The film works because its stars make up a trifecta of terrific performers who overcome the clichés inherent in their characters.
